The Horrifying Truth of Thomas the Tank Engine

Thomas was always a bit unsettling. Now it all makes sense, thanks to these disturbing animations from VFX artist Tom Coben.

Addams Family trailer

Watch the First Trailer for the Addams Family Animated Film

It should come as no surprise that The Addams Family cartoons by Charles Addams, as well as television series from 1960s and the movie adaptations from the 1990s (which are near perfection – well, at least the first one is), are cherished here at Cult of Weird HQ.

That is why it is with great sorrow that I present to you the first trailer for the long-awaited animated film.

If you need me, I’ll be in my dungeon crying.

New Salad Fingers episode

Salad Fingers Returns in 11th Installment of Nightmarish Series

Salad Fingers is tormented by his brother and mother from the other side of the mirror.

It’s been five years since we got a new episode of Salad Fingers from creator David Firth, but it was worth the wait. In the long awaited and deeply unsettling 11th episode “Glass Brother” Salad Fingers decides it is time to turn his finger puppet friend Hubert Cumberdale into a “real boy.” But when his mother and brother from the other side of the mirror steal Hubert, Salad Fingers must find a way to cross over and save his little flesh-boy.

Firth has been creeping out the internet with Salad Fingers since 2004, and this new episode does not disappoint.

If you’re not familiar with the creepy, salady being with the red water, watch episodes one through ten here:

If you like this, Firth also recently released a DVD called Umbilical World. It is a feature-length film collection containing “13 years worth of animated madness, stitched together to form a single stream of nightmare consciousness” containing all of his well-known work, as well as never-before-seen material.
